Subject Re: "Best" place to browse plugins
Date Wed, 27 May 2015 02:44:49 GMT
I would like to see plugin.cordova.io be a page easy to search and filter
cordova plugins just like gulp [1], grunt [2], yeoman [3] and bower [4]

[1]: http://gulpjs.com/plugins
[2]: http://gruntjs.com/plugins
[3]: http://yeoman.io/generators
[4]: http://bower.io/search
